With the Coronavirus Pandemic, Just a Drop's work has become even more critical!

We've worked hard to support and protect communities across the world from the virus. We have provided hand washing facilities and soap to local markets to enable them to stay open so people can maintain livelihoods and buy food.

Having purchased motorbikes our local teams have been visiting villages, towns and market places in order to raise more awareness and understanding of the dangers of Covid-19 and distributing educational leaflets.

We still have work to do, and your support means more to us than ever before.

We all know that Christmas is going to be quite different this year. With the pandemic still very much  in our lives, we will have to adapt our Christmas plans and get-togethers to make them coronavirus-friendly and in line with the current restrictions.

With that in mind, we've come up with a programme of events to bring you some Christmas Cheer, whilst fundraising for Just a Drop's important work across the world!

Christmas Jumper Day 2020!

Friday 11th December is Christmas Jumper Day!

Wear a silly jumper on all of your zoom calls that day and ask your colleagues to do the same. Then donate £10 to Just a Drop - you could even set up a JustGiving Page to track how much your company has raised for our transformational work!

Perhaps you could all share a photo of your jumpers and vote on which Christmas Jumper is the best (or worst!). 

To finish off the day, you could make yourself the official Just a Drop Quizmaster and download our quiz for an evening of festive trivia with your colleagues. Don't forget to email [email protected] to ask for the answer sheet!

 

Virtual Christmas Concert 2020

We all know that Christmas is going to be quite different this year!

With the pandemic still very much in our lives, we will have to adapt our Christmas plans and get-togethers to make them coronavirus-friendly and in line with the current restrictions. With this in mind, Just a Drop would love you to attend out Virtual Christmas Concert! 

We'll be singing along to our Christmas favourites and bringing you some Christmas cheer directly to your arm chair. We'll even send you a song sheet so that you can sing along too!

Give a gift with a difference!

Check out the campaign that we are running with Kinder Gifts! 

Kindergifts is an online invitation platform with a social mission. It helps people to celebrate for a good cause and a dream gift whilst reducing gift waste. Ask for and give meaningful gifts this Christmas!

You could also use the Ziffit Platform to have an impact! Why not make space for all those new Christmas presents by selling your old stuff for charity? You could even get friends and family to do the same. Ziffit is a great way to turn your unwanted items into donations. It’s a website and app that makes raising money from your unwanted old CDs, DVDs, books and games - incredibly simple.

You could also consider giving a gift that keeps on giving this Christmas!

One of our long-term supporters, Howard Klein, is an outstanding amateur photographer and has kindly offered a number of prints to us in order to raise extra funds for Just A Drop’s vital work.  Howard is offering prints at a modest donation level, around £20-30, including P&P.  Each photograph will be individually printed and then mounted in Frith mounts to set them nicely.

See Howard’s landscapes, coastal & London images at www.howardklein.co.uk. To order or enquire, simply fill in the form on his About/Contact page.
